I’ve made the decision to spring forward with Spring, and leave Winter far, far behind, regardless of the weather temperatures.  Okay, I say this now and I’ll probably change my tune at the first sight of a snowflake in the sky, but, I am moving ahead with bringing out the bright colors, flouncy skirts and colorful florals from my wardrobe.

 

I was recently offered the chance to try out the new Sloan collection from Banana Republic, and I immediately went for these gorgeous turquoise slim ankle pants.  FYI, they have the perfect amount of stretch to them, keep their shape with multiple wears, the fabric is rich, and they fit like a glove.  If you can’t tell, I love them!  Highly recommended.  But back to my “vow of Spring”.  My first instinct was to pair these pants with a black and white striped top, black pumps and a black handbag.  I’m sure I will wear that outfit later on, but I’m so ready for color, so I went all out and wore as many brights as possible.  I felt cheery, colorful and had a spring in my step (pun intended).

    Love the bright colors! Banana has some great pants right now. I’m wearing a pair on my blog today too. We’re back to the 20s in NYC, but I really just want spring to stick around!

    It’s refreshing to see so much colour! I know I see this in the blogging world, but I’m sick of seeing a sea of black jackets in downtown Toronto every day.

    I also love the background you chose for the shoot. Such a great contrast of moods!

      Hahaha, I agree! I was with a friend the other day in a crowded store. She was wearing a black coat, and I was trying to find her, but every other person was wearing a black coat too! So much black in this city! 🙂
